I received a free copy from the publisher via Netgalley and chose to leave a voluntary review. Thank you!*

Cindi Madsen has become my auto-buy author a long time again and this book again proofs why. I read the entire book in one sitting, because I didn’t want to miss a single minute with these characters.

I loved everything about this book, the story, the setting, the humor and romance but most of all the characters. Cindi Madsen is a master in creating realistic, down to earth, likable

Single mom, Jessica was at the end of her rope. Her teen daughter, Chloe, had been pushing the limits for a while, and after she was summoned by the police to bail her daughter out, Jessica decided it was time for drastic measures. A possible solution to her problems came in the form of the Turn Around Ranch, a place which employed traditional therapy with animal therapy and hard work. The problem was, they were full-up. But, in a last ditch attempt, Jessica offered to serve as the ranch's cook ...more

There aren't just troubled teens at the Turn Around Ranch. There's a loving atmosphere that will warm your heart!

Turn Around Ranch has an excellent reputation as "THE" place for troubled teens to get a new start in life. Jessica Cook has driven a long way listening to her rebellious teen daughter Chloe whine and carry on about how her mother has ruined her life by taking her to this correctional ranch for teens. Of course it's Chloe who has put herself in this position. She was caught in a

What do you get when you throw a hardened, damaged yet curiously intrigued cowboy who works with the motto “no exceptions” AND a young, insecure former Ranch participant / come Cowboy with a 15 year old who’s found herself in trouble with the law AND her worried, stubborn and protective Mama Bear? Obviously one bad cook and alot of heat.

The inviting first romance in the Turn Around Ranch series from Madsen (Just One of the Groomsmen) finds the passion hidden in an inordinately obstinate cowboy. Single mom Jessica Cook drags her daughter, Chloe, to Colorado’s Turn Around Ranch, a correctional ranch for troubled teens. Though the ranch is at capacity, the staff agrees to admit Chloe if Jessica will fill the long-vacant position of ranch cook. Determined to help her daughter, Jessica agrees, though her cooking experience is ...more

Everybody needs a second chance!

Everybody needs a second chance especially Jessica Cook’s daughter Chloe after she got involved with a group of friends at school that are trouble especially the boy she is dating. Jessica told the staff at Turn Around Ranch that she was a cook even though she wasn’t just so she could get the help that Chloe needed. Wade Dawson owned and ran Turn Around Ranch with his family and staff but he tried to turn them down but he knew that they needed a cook so his mother

Single mom Jessica is at the end of her rope with her teenage daughter Chloe, she has just been arrested and she needs to get her away from her smarmy boyfriend. Jessica's daughter seems to have turned out just like her mom since Jessica had Chloe at the age of 16. I have to say I looked up to Jessica she raised her well and did everything for her. While taking her to turn around ranch and begging for a job, they advise her there are just no openings and Grouchy cowboy Wade is not going to give ...more

A Cowboy Never Quits is a fabulous western romance by Cindi Madsen. Ms. Madsen has given readers a well-written book. I love the characters in this story, they're awesome. Jessica's daughter has landed in trouble and she's determined to get her a place at Turn Around Ranch. So she takes the cook job at the ranch to secure her daughter a spot, the problem is, she can't cook. Wade runs the ranch but the family votes on important issues. Wade was outvoted. Jessica and Wade's story is packed with ...more

I had to leave for work this morning with only a handful of pages left and all day all I wanted was to run home and be reunited with this book. I was all in with this story from the first sentence. I felt for Jessica instantly and her determination to do whatever necessary for her daughter. Even with his gruff stubbornness I could not help but be instantly smitten with Wade who also wants to do what is best for his family. There is not a false note to be found in their story as they get to know ...more

I haven’t read a cowboy story in awhile and this one reminded me why I enjoy them so much.

Jess and Wade’s love story felt very genuine. Both a little jaded and with their own baggage the author gave me a “real” romance - bumps and all. The ranch setting and the teens added a fantastic element to the read.

I received an arc of this book.

Chloe and Jess's story pretty much broke my heart. Chloe turns out pretty awesome if you ask me. Wade is so lucky to have these two ladies in his life. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to see what come next from, Cindi Madsen.
